One of the most fulfilling aspects of my job as an event decorator/planner, is meeting and getting to know the couples. I knew I hit the client jackpot within our first meeting. Andrea and Jordan were kind, genuine, easy going people who knew they wanted a relaxed wedding atmosphere, but needed direction with their decor and planning. So we got to work, creating a plan that would compliment the already cool environment their venue--the Storys Building--offered. With exposed brick walls, huge factory height windows, and a downtown city vibe, the decor didn't need to be flashy. Vintage apple crates and candle votives were the only backdrop needed for the ceremony; not forgetting the beautiful wild-flower arrangements that were also carried into the reception's decor scheme. I loved the use of milk glass, juxtaposing the classic vases against the industrial feel of the loft. The event was personalized with pictures of the couple strung throughout the space, and the bride took thoughtfulness to new heights--writing a personal message to each guest on the back of their place card. Told you these were nice people!
After speeches filled with tears of joy and a beautiful acoustic serenade by the bride's brother, the couple invited guests upstairs where a live band kept guests dancing well into the wee-hours of the morning. It was truly a pleasure helping Andrea and Jordan on their big day, and I am excited to see what comes next for them!
